The objective of this project is to analyze a supply chain designed to provide a prototype electronic system with multiple companies involved. The rationale for this project is that integrating multiple companies’ products and intellectual property to produce a new prototype which produces a new set of functionalities incorporates many types of risk. These risks include, but are not limited to, compatibility of technology, scheduling, cost overrun, and viability of the delivered prototype system. Results indicate that the risks can be managed to ensure successful fulfilment of the prototype production. A main conclusion is that project management that includes scheduling and risk analysis greatly reduces the risk of prototype delivery failure.
